, law was less than that. that was a classic compromise that he did not get. another compromise was his promise to repeal the bush tax cuts for higher income. his goal was couples making more than 200th $50,000 or couples making $200,000 and the fiscal cliff deal did not achieve that. we rented that a compromise. let's go to fort lauderdale,. caller: with respect to not keeping a promise for negotiations with a health kicce -- i think that a somewhat wrong. i have watched the other representatives of congress on tv every day negotiating and debating and putting their facts together. the final decision between nancy pelosi and the head of the sun -- of the senate when they finally came out with exactly what the bill would be -- it was done behind closed doors. the putting together of the bills, people putting in their amendments, was actually done on cspan every day and i watched that. secondly, with respect to these people calling about taking away guns. there is nothing about taking away people's guns. if they go through a background check, they don't need to have a gun. the second ame
in the days and weeks after the inauguration to sell their proposal for stiffer gun laws and gun safety package. it's a strategy they feel has been successful in the past. they used it during the fiscal cliff fight, the student loan debate and they feel it's a way to rally the american public on their side and to pressure congress to act. it has been successful in the past, will it be in this instance? of course, that is a big question mark. this is a very controversial issue. but the polls show that the president has the majority of america on his side. the wall street journal poll shows that americans favor stiffer gun laws so that is his plan moving forward. >> thanks to you, dave, before you leave, picking up on what kristin said there. the president's gun proposal here, there are a lot of folks who have surmised that the president has asked for things that politically he knows he will not be able to get, especially the assault weapon's ban, is that what the white house strategy is? >> they cannot say they are giving up on the assault weapon's ban, but i think they are looking and a
and work more together to pass the laws that need to be passed. that's all i have to say. host:jody cantor has a lengthy story of this morning on the front page of " the new york times." steve is joining us from with -- ridgway, pa., independent line, good morning. caller: one thing i have noticed since president obama has been president is the continual -- a concerted effort to compare himself to president lincoln, a first in his talking about the book that he was reading -- i cannot remember the title of it -- >> king of rivals? caller: now he is taking the inauguration on the lincoln bauble. there is an idea that some callers have made that this president has faced worst consequences or worse situations than previous presidents i think is somewhat absurd. the fact that he is half-black, there is nothing to it. he is the president of united states and is supposed to be president of everybody. unfortunately, i have lost confidence in the politicians in washington, d.c. and i think the people of the united states should continually boat these people out of office on a regular basis until t
,000 and 2500 law enforcement officers from all over the country. as far out as california, as far south as florida. they're brought here, they volunteer and then they are deputized as united states marshals. for the period of the inauguration. they have police powers, in the city, they also have arrest powersth and they're basically going to be doing crowd control and such. so i, tweeted out a picture of this, a sea of police, that's just the beginning of it you also have something like 6,000 national guards. you have 4,000 from the d.c. police department and you have the unseen as you were talking about a minute ago. >> we talk about stuff being implemented. a lot of stuff they're prepared for just in case. >> absolutely. there's tons of it. obviously there are cameras all over the place, they're watching us and we're watching them and they're watching television. at an undisclosed location there are all sorts of law enforcement agencies, a veritable alphabet soup of organizations watching monitors. waiting for something to jump on. huge crowds expected here, but nothing like last time
was telling them that there's a difference between a speech in front of a law school class and a campaign speech. he was this not getting that. he spent a lot of time in black churches listening to preachers. that really influenced his speaking style. the next time heard him after that was in 2004 at the heartland cafe and my jaw dropped. >> he worked for her. he wanted to go with her. >> she graduated from law school before he had. >> there is the vice president. san >> [applause] >> [music] >> [inaudible] >>the president of the united staes and mrs. obama. >> [applause] >> [applasuuse] >> [inaudible] >> ladies and gentleman please take your seats. >> mr. president mr. vice president, honored guests. we are pleased to welcome you to today's inaugural luncheon. and this historic room we look around at the 35 statues representing men and women. i feel obligated to know that she was born in rochester n.y.. thankfully she will soon have company when rosa parks completes her journey. we look around and a member of the men and women who helped define our nation. they like us face o

in the last four years. and his mother in law. this is the first president in more than a generation who has his mother-in-law living at the white house. good or bad, he has his mother-in-law living at the white house. that should be, at some levels, admired. it is what it is. she is very instrumental in raising the girls and keeping them grounded. the major folks are in place. the remaining members of the president's family, including his daughter and mother in law will establish their seats. these girls will be 15 and 18 years old for years from now. they will have spent a majority of their formative years in the white house. they have grown to be remarkable young ladies and under the duress and the pressure in the public eye, they have certainly been a credit to this president. peter barnes, i am wondering, as these kids taken their dad and the overtures that he will make to lead this nation and united, it is a very different tone now than it was four years ago. peter: that is right neil. right now, in the latest fox news poll he is up 48%. when he was first elected, he was about 65%. the

stressful moments for the authorities. as a result, we have more than 13,000 military and law enforcement personnel, ready for this event. we have snipers on the roofs. we have biological and chemical units prepared to deal with whatever comes up. we have a high degree of surveillance. satellites zooming in on the mall, as well as hundreds of surveillance cameras, to watch potential suspects. as one official told me last night, we have no specific threat. but we have to be ready for anything, george. >> and i know they've been preparing for this for a year. they've been locking the buildings on the parade route. they've been locking the garbage cans on the parade route. repaved the road. they are taking no chances. we have an incredible team of presidential savvy with us this morning. i want a quick word from two of them sitting with us here. let's start with matthew dowd, contributor to abc news. you have contributed to a combine, as well. both sides of the aisle. what does it take for a president to take a second inauguration and make it soaring? >> well, it's a much different situation
will always get guns. doesn't mean you don't make laws. if that is the case you didn't make laws because people would always break them. according to gallup, 53% support president's on gun control. "time" magazine as 56%. there is great support in congress and senate at least among the american people for the president to do what he wants to do. martha: we have another poll we want to look at. it shows basically americans believe the most important thing is to protect the constitutional right of the second amendment to own guns. 51% say that. 40% say they think the most important part is to protect citizens from gun violence. just a quick thought on that, mark. we have to go. we have to break away to something live here. >> exactly. protecting americans from gun violence, the assault weapons ban doesn't do that we had assault weapons ban from 1994 to 2004. it expired in 2004. you know what happened? guns violence went down since the sought weapons ban expired. bill: the white house giving a bit of the theme for the speech. moments away in washington. martha: a major weather alert in part
, connecticut has profoundly moved the dial on public support for stricter gun laws. the new poll finds that 54% of americans think gun control laws should be tightened in comparison to just 39% lass than a year ago. perhaps most heartening is the proposal by gun owners. a whopping 93% of people from gun-owning households support background checks on all gun purchases. and 53% of them support a ban on high-capacity magazines. but will public opinion translate into meaningful policy changes? as we have seen in the weeks since nowtown, not without a fiekt from the nra and the gun lobby. our next guest lee fong, contributing writer for "the nation," and he is here with the latest on what gun manufacturers are doing. welcome back inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> when i see these numbers on guns, it's astonishing how much this tragedy has changed these numbers. >> this tragedy was unique, one because it was so horrific, but two, we saw a lot of political leadership that we haven't seen in previous massacres. with the shooting in wisconsin we didn't see
and uphold our values through strengths of arms and rule of law. we will show courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peaceably not because we are 90 but because engagements can lift suspicion and fear. america " remain at the anger of a strong alliance. we will extend our capacity to manage a crisis and fraud. we will support democracy from asia to africa to the americans to the middle east. our interest and our conscience compel us to act on behalf of those who long for freedom. we must be a source of hope for the port, sick, marginalized, victims of prejudice. peace requires the advance of those principles. tolerance and opportunity. human dignity. justice. we the people declare the most evidence of sure that all of us are declared equal. just as they guided all those men and women we can not walk alone. our individual freedom is inexplicably bound for the freedom. it is our generation's path to carry on what those pioneers began. our journey is not complete until our mothers and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts. our journey is not complete until ou
think he did. >> he's harvard two degrees -- >> so how could he so misstate the law on guns when in fact scalia and the supreme court in 2008 specifically said a woman in anacostia in a crack house next door could have a handgun? and also saying the president exploited this, could somebody tell him he's actually senator of a very large demographically changing state and not the spokesman for the tea party for, like, you know, the greater tea party, the greater houston chapter of the tea party? i was shocked. >> i was shocked too. frankly, because he seemed to be saying in the senatorial way, cruz, my friend and they barely know each other. cruz went after him over and over and over again. it was a very unusual performance by a freshman senator who doesn't seem to want to get along, wants to start a fire here. >> the problem is mika if this had happened in 2010 i'd say i understand the politics of it. the republican party i'm sorry, we have our backs against the wall. the president of the united states has a 52% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval
having arrived at the platform, greeting both of his daughters and his wife and mother-in-law. you see behind him, there is vice president biden, chuck schumer, chair of the inaugural committee is the first person we'll hear from and call proceedings to order. and then it unfolds like the greatest graduation ceremony ever. >> rachel, there's a moment when the new president takes over, like when reagan took over from carter, when the chief of secret service walks behind one guy to the other guy, it is pretty creepy. it is pretty creepy when you're the guy losing protection, but nicely enough, it will be the same guy there. >> jerry ford was the first president who upon leaving office from the inauguration of the new president, jimmy carter, decided to leave by helicopter, seen as a rather odd way to leave on the way, but every president has followed that tradition. it is a dramatic way to get out of dodge. also your last ride in marine one. >> you want to allow the indulgence just a bit. >> one of the things as yet undetermined for the second term is who exactly will make up the preside
and uphold our values through strength of arms and the rule of law. we will show the courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peacefully, not because we are naive about the dangers we face, but because engagement can lift suspicion and fear. america will remain the anchor of strong alliances in every corner of the globe. and we will renew those institutions that extend our capacity to manage crisis abroad. for no one has a greater stake in a peaceful world than its most powerful nation. we will support democracy from asia to africa, from the americas to the middle east because our interests and our conscious compel us to act on behalf of those who long for freedom. we must be a source of hope to the poor, the sick, the magicalized, the victims of prejudice, not out of mere charity, but because peace in our time requires the constant advance of those principles that our common creed describes, tolerance and opportunity, human dignity and justice. we, the people, declared today that the most evident of truths that all of us are created equal. it is the star that g
to make it the law of the land and institutionalize it. the presidents hit by the curse. i mean, ronald reagan with the iran-contra scandal. bill clinton had monica lewinski. george bush, katrina. they seem to get unsettled and unraveled by a big event, often beyond their control. barack obama, we don't know what it may be. may be nothing but what he does have, he has at least a green chute to a better economy. he didn't have that four years ago. inherited one of the worst financial messes you could imagine. is that a significant help to him? >> think of second term dwight eisenhower. dealt with the little rock kri sis. nasa. a treaty with 12 countries to demilitarize antarctica. all second term. bill clinton, what he have been without a second term? not a big budget surplus and ronald reagan, i think iran-contra is overblown and historic gorbachev diplomacy and margaret thatcher said reagan ended the cold war without a single shot and the spth feeling good about the second term. he doesn't have the curse mentality. >> what are the priorities, what would you like to see the president fo
anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we committed to one another must be equal as well. >> reporter: foreign policy absent from his address, though he heralded the end of a decade of war, and touted the economy. >> the commitments we may teach each other, these things do not sap our nation, they strengthen us. >> reporter: the president mostly refrained from partisan jabs but appeared to single out his former gop opponent mitt romney with this line. >> they do not make us a nation of takers. ♪ >> reporter: filling the air with patriotism, the voices of kelly clarkson and beyonce. ♪ >> reporter: there was a poem and prayers. as he left the front of the capitol, a nostalgic president turned back toward the lincoln memorial. >> i want to take a look one more time. i'm not going to see this again. >> reporter: before the president gets back to work, he heads to the washington national cathedral for an interfaith service for prayers to be offered up for the country and the president. it's a tradition that dates back to fdr. soledad. >> dan l

americans trying to understand the new tax laws. i've been learning a lot over the last few months and talking with people who are trying to help me make intelligent and informed decisions. i certainly don't have a definitive plan at this time but like everyone else i want to make decisions that are best for my future and my family. finances and taxes are a personal matter, and i should not have made my opinions on them public. i apologize to those who i have upset or insulted and assure you, i intend to not let that happen again. >>steve: a man now has to apologize for upsetting people or offending people because he doesn't like the idea of paying 63 cents on every dollar extra that he makes. >>steve: there is no secret why so many professional athletes choose not to live in california he has to give away 60% of his money or he's whining and should feel lucky. he's away probably 250 days a year from his family. there is no guarantee of any single dollar. there is no guarantee in his life. >> what happened to states which have raised their tax rates like california, like illinois v
. the progressive era new deal and great society laws were enacted when america was still a young and growing nation. they were enacted in a nation that was vibrant, raw, underinstitutionalized and needing taming. reinvigorating a mature nation means giving government to give people the tools to compete but then opening up a wide field so they do so ruak cowsly creatively. it means spending more here but de regulating more there. it means facing the fact we do have to choose between current benefits to seniors and investments in our future, and that to pretend we don't face that choice as obama did is effectively to sacrifice the future to the past. >> jonathan, first, what do you think of this speech and secondly, what do you think of david's column? >> i thought the president's speech was terrific, a progressive vision for the country. the guy won twice and ran on all the things he talked about yesterday, inclusion, balanced approach to the nation's problems. when it comes to david brooks' column, as mika was reading, i was thinking, how is that different from what the president actually said? i m
difficult to do but if that can be found, and i think we're going to have good immigration law. >> the president extended really an olive branch, if you will, before the inaugural address to republicans saying that he's going to try to reach out more, perhaps invite people over to the white house, whether or not he kind of joked about playing cards and golf and that type of thing. if the president were to reach out to you more in the second term, would you take him up on it? would you be a part of a group that would really try to break through some of the nastiness that we've seen in washington? >> of course i would. and i would give an example of my doing that as i tried to work very closely with republican and democrats in the congress and with the president the first nine months of obama care, trying to reach a bipartisan agreement. but we weren't moving fast enough for the president. he decided to go ahead on a part dan basis. so i got nine months there of working very closely. i can tell you, more recently, there's an inaugural lunch after his speech and i was invited to t
the stage. for many people, when the mother-in-law of the president actually moved into the white house, it seemed like the perfect moment for a sitcom. that never happened. but the president's daughters now we've watched them grow up in the white house under four years under the scrutiny of the public eye. i think sasha had the greatest moment of the entire campaign yesterday when after he took the oath of office, she could be audibly heard congratulating her daddy for not messing up. >> jennifer: you know what's ironic about that. i was of watching another program this morning. they were offended that the president after he was done said to his daughter, i did it. as though i did it. i got elected instead of i got through this without messing up. because -- >> jennifer: exactly. it wasn't a we built this moment but famously, four years ago, the president made some -- omitted some words in the oath of office which is why john roberts had to give him the oath of office again the next day. that coupled with the fact that this year, inauguration day falls on a monday and he had to be swor
laws in this country. how much a part of the president's resolve will that be in the months coming? >> well, the thing -- the president always said that, you know, you have to do many things at once when you're president, and that's a very important thing. we can't keep replicating these tragedies and it's not just the big tragedies, but the small, smaller strategy dtragedies than the streets every day. so he's determined to move forward on this package of laws. they're not the only things we need to do. some of the things have less to do with government and more to do with what we -- what we do in our home. what our children play and in terms of video games and what they watch. but certainly we need to do something about guns. we are hopeful that we're at a moment when we can pass the impasse that we have seen in the past and really move forward on it. >> hey, david, bob schieffer here. >> hey, bob. >> in normal times, probably we wouldn't report this, but in these fractured times this just in as they say. i'm told that speaker boehner, eric cantor, the number two republican in th
